Specific areas of Internationalization


The purpose of the food supply is not only the objective of Agriculture, it also aims profit and the creation of economy and it happens unequally on the planet

Developed and underdeveloped countries differ in many aspects, agricultural activity is no exception.

In underdeveloped countries, agricultural activity is focused on supplying the foreign market first, and only surpluses are left to the population, which generates food shortages and high food prices. On the contrary, in developed countries agricultural activity is focused primarily on supplying the domestic market, then the foreign market. Thus, the value of the products to the consumer of the country in which it is being cultivated becomes cheaper, since the import price does not "accumulate" in the price of the same as in the developing countries. It is concluded that they obtain high rates of productivity.

We must overcome these issues in developing countries by creating conditions for mass agriculture: key factors must be taken into consideration:

  • Water

  • Type of cultures

  • Forms of cultivation

  • Distribution

  • Markets and consumption

EFACONT proposes an update on agricultural practices, with new crops and innovative farming processes, using fertilizers, practicing seed separation, using more efficient machinery, all aiming for greater productivity and economic efficiency Supply and demand.

 Energy and Fuels

Energy and utilities face the triple challenge of improving environmental performance, reducing consumer costs and EFACONT finds and partners with European and Portuguese companies with sufficient know-how to find solutions for developing countries and their vast experience assisting in the creation of strategy and methodology to boost their development and make them competitive in the near future

The main issues that shape the energy and utility environment today include:

  • Reform of energy supply systems;
  • Change of the energy networks leading to the global development of the exploitation of new energy sources; Solar, wind, hydro, among others with implications in several areas of the economy and in need of a vast knowledge of new technologies;
  • Highly qualified staff;
  • Formation of the new generations in professions hitherto unknown.

Intelligent Technology, energy and local economy

The introduction of smart technology is an immediate challenge in terms of funding and the choice of the right technologies.

EFACONT supports consultancy and joint research with accredited entities to find methodologies and the search for optimized processes to improve the resilience of the energy network in developing countries and to allow large-scale energy transmission is often more important than Price and competitiveness.

Having competitive systems and controlling the matching of supply and demand in these countries will become increasingly complex. However, in the long run, smart technology is likely to cause major disruptions to existing business models.

All important business processes will be affected by intelligent technology.

EFACONT will assist in change programs to realize potential benefits and keep stakeholders involved and with sustainability of the various aspects of the business around each economy

Potable water

Shortage of water will destroy the economy of the poorest countries today from 20% to 43.5% the proportion of people without access to water, and is important investments in the recycling of water resources and the creation of new sources of drinking water supply, water treatment, desalination, among others.

Water use

The FAO predicts that world food production will have to rise by about 60 percent to feed two billion more people by 2030.

On the other hand, water use in agriculture will be a key element in increasing food production, especially in many developing countries, where currently about 800 million people are suffering from chronic hunger.

Much of the increase in future food production in developing countries will come from irrigated land, it is estimated that in 2030 the extraction of water for agriculture will be 14% higher than today to meet the needs of food production.

Only Africa has a potential of 40 million hectares for irrigated agriculture, whereas currently only 12 million hectares are used. EFACONT has partners from university forest engineering communities prepared to meet the needs in each specific case.

Welfare, health and medical institutions

Today's global reality shows that health and development are intrinsically linked and that in the developing countries it is necessary to transfer knowledge, experience and training in the field of health and well-being.

Thus, it is clear that the achievement and maintenance of social welfare require that people have the minimum conditions for their survival: food, housing and education, and treatment of diseases, conditions that, if absent, can produce internal conflicts and intrapsychic factors favoring malaise and increased need for health care and lower productivity.

Sufficient hospital support is needed to improve working conditions and consequent creation of economy and well-being.

EFACONT develops consultancy services related to the definition of health units that can generate savings in self-sufficiency processes and integrated management with the intervention of university and scientific communities that can provide services and provide ongoing training to health professionals with marketing plans to obtain the desired value chain for optimization and economic sustainability of the health units of developing countries, not neglecting the social aspect of these countries, obtaining results in the various economic, community, social, regional, territorial, sustainable development.

Communication and communication routes versus distribution

The means of communication serve to move people or goods between a source and a destination, carried out in appropriate ways, with the functions:

  • Policy: control of the territory and connection between various parts of the country;
  • Economic: support of economic activities;
  • Social: population mobility, approximation of peoples and cultures and cultural diffusion.

Developing countries have dense, incomplete and isolated transport networks that connect ports to major cities or places of raw material exploitation and for their development it is essential to become denser but with the consequent effects of Environmental and social impact.

EFACONT promotes consultancy and develops the essential studies in an adequate way and finds the companies with specific technology for the projects and implementation of the same that with quality and associated European certifications can avoid these situations:

  • Excessive soil cover that prevents normal runoff from rainwater;
  • The modification of aquatic systems during dredging;
  • The spillage of substances dangerous to water;
  • Changes in the landscape with the construction of infrastructures;
  • Atmospheric, visual and sound pollution.
